Snoop Dogg may have forgotten requesting a free Tesla two years ago, but the response from Elon Musk was pretty savage.

The Tesla CEO finally got around to replying to Snoop Dogg’s video – and he did not take kindly to being called out.

However, it seemed Snoop Dogg had a good reason to expect one.

“This is a message for Elon Musk,” Snoop Dogg begins in his OG video posted in April 2022.

“Nephew: I need a Tesla.

“When your peoples came to my show, they told me they was gonna get me one.”

He continued: “I’m still waiting… do I have to buy one or you gonna send me one?”

“It’s the D-O-Dub, cuz. Get to it and do it, and congrats on Twitter.” 

However, far from being swift in his response, Elon Musk had an answer two years later – and it was pretty blunt.

“Everyone pays full price … including me,” said Musk in a post on X in response.

Dogg is already a Tesla owner.

Long before this apparent interaction, Snoop Dogg purchased a white Model X SUV in 2017.

He posted a video of his new ride to Instagram.

Even Musk’s mother, Maye Musk, reportedly paid full price for her Tesla, with her son proffering no friends and family discount.

” Hey @SnoopDogg even Elons’ Momma paid full price for her Tesla….!!” said one comment.

When a family member requested a discount, Musk apparently responded: “Everybody’s family when you buy a Tesla.”

There’s a reason why Musk is set to become the world’s first trillionaire.

Many X users were outraged at the rapper and entrepreneur’s request.

“You’ll have to buy one! Like the rest of us. Can you not afford one!?”

As of 2023 Snoop Dogg had a net worth of $160 million – in fact he recently revealed how much Spotify paid him for one billion streams.

What’s more, the mansion he bought for $700k in 1998 is now worth astonishing amount.

He also has an incredible car collection.

However, he was defended by some with one comment in response: “He was promised.”

He has a point.
